The French ParadoxSubmitted by Delete on Fri, 07/26/2013 - 21:04
The French Paradox refers to the fact that, despite a very high fat diet, the French enjoy long, healthy lives. The red wine that they copiously consume seems to be the reason. This phenomenon has inspired me to write a celebratory poem. Cheers!
The French Paradox
The French Paradox has me feeling fine,
Because I can eat lots of fat if I drink lots of wine,
I had always thought that the key to longevity,
Was Spartan severity,
But hallelujah that's not true at all,
For the Methuselah factor is alcohol!
